TurfEx has introduced the TT5000 Spread-N-Spray for lawn-care professionals. The machine has a standard height-adjustable boom kit which, according to the manufacturer, maximizes spray width while minimizing waste.
The TT5000 is driven by a 7-horsepower Subaru EX210 engine with electric start and has a 0.95-gallon fuel tank. Its Peerless transmission has two forward gears, neutral and reverse, with a top operating speed of 5 miles per hour.
A hand-operated transmission disc brake and foot-controlled sulky band brake enable smooth operation of the unit, and TurfEx says the sprayer-spreader’s low center of gravity further increases the safety of the TT5000.
An integrated 17-gallon tank system has a single rapid-fill port. To apply the liquid, the TT5000 includes a front-mounted 84-inch stainless steel boom, which can spray between 6 and 12 feet wide for general spraying, or 3 feet wide for trim.
The boom wings can be folded for traveling through fence gates and other confined areas. The wings are equipped with spring-activated tripping mechanisms to prevent damage if the boom strikes an obstacle.
TurfEx says a professional-duty spray wand with 10-foot hose also comes standard. The unit’s electric pump can be turned on while the engine isn’t running, enabling the operator to spot spray using only battery power.
The hopper of the TT5000 holds up to 150 pounds, or 3 cubic feet, of material. A 12-inch polyethylene spinner throws a spread pattern up to 14 feet wide, while the stainless steel flow gate with adjustable precision-agitation distribution promotes accurate application of granular material.
Ergonomic fingertip controls allow the operator to manage the functions of the TT5000 easily, according to the manufacturer.
A pressure gauge, liquid level gauge, digital tachometer and lubrication indicator come standard to verify the status of the machine. A push-button kill switch provides emergency stopping.
TurfEx, which is part of Douglas Dynamics, says the new machine is designed for minimum maintenance. The TT5000 is constructed from corrosion-resistant materials and contains protective shrouding to prevent material buildup and rust.
Other standard features include knobby-tread front tires, rear turf tires, a double-bearing sulky pivot, side deflector, hopper cover, top screen and bumper update kit.
